Ready for some Christmas baking?

British etiquette expert, William Hanson, shows us in this short video how to eat mince pies. Something that was new to me. You eat them with your left hand!

A mince pie is a small pie filled with mincemeat and fruit that is traditionally served during the Christmas season in the English-speaking world. If you want to make them yourself, try this recipe I found on the BBC website here.

I’ve never made them myself, because I don’t like them. It’s the suet in the filling I don’t like! The very thought of the suet makes me shudder!

suet = Rindertalg
